Dennis Schroder Benched After On-Court Exchange With Dwight Howard

A heated exchange between Dennis Schroder and Dwight Howard led to a defensive breakdown during the Atlanta Hawks’ 119-111 loss to the Golden State Warriors.


Schroder also had words with coach Mike Budenholzer following the play. Budenholzer then benched Schroder, who played just 3:19 of the second half.

Dennis Schroder said he didn’t understand the discipline and wanted a meeting to discuss it. Howard said such a conversation would not a bad thing.

“Just us staying together is the bigger point,” Budenholzer said of his decision. “We’ve got to stay together and find a way to move on to the next play. Those things are important.”

As Schroder and Howard argued, the Warriors inbounded the ball and Stephen Curry quickly hit a 3-pointer. Budenholzer was heard to yell at Schroder “That’s what I’m talking about.”

“I don’t really know,” Schroder said when asked why he was benched. “I know the 3 from Steph Curry when me and Dwight was arguing was part of it. That can’t happen. I don’t understand coach’s decision. I want to be on the court. Maybe I’m too competitive. I’m just trying to be competitive and win games.”

He added he would like to meet with Budenholzer about the disciplinary action.

“We have to figure it out, me and coach,” Schroder said. “I want to talk about it. Dwight’s got to be in there too. Get on the same page.”

Jose Calderon to the HAWKS

Jose Calderon Is Heading To Atlanta


After being waived during the NBA trade deadline, and signing with the Warriors for 2 hours, then to be waived again. Jose Calderon looks like he found a team for the rest of the season.

The 35-year-old guard will try to help the Atlanta Hawks make a playoff push this season, but I think it is going to be hard to find him minutes because the Hawks currently have Tim Hardaway Jr, Kent Bazemore, and Dennis Schroder.

With that being said, The Hawks are now responsible for Calderon contact. The Hawks will pay Calderon about $247,000 for the remainder of the season.

Cavaliers Set New Shooting Record

Cavaliers set regular-season 3-point record against the Hawks

The Cleveland Cavaliers set a regular season 3 point record against the Hawks for the second time in NBA history in a 135- 130 win Friday night. The Cavs made 25 tree pointers, which is the most ever since the 3- point line was introduced into the league in 1979-80 season.

 

 

Even though the Cavs shot 25 for 46 from the 3-point line, it was not an easy game. In the last 2 minutes, both teams were tied up, but with a 3 from LeBron and another 3 from Kyle Kover, they were able to seal the deal in Atlanta.

 

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers


This year NBA trade deadline was not as big as others in the past year. The only big name star that was traded was DaMarcus Cousins. Other than him, regular role players were traded before Thursday 12 pm pacific time. Other super star names that we were expecting to hear was Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo, and even Blake griffin.  None of these teams did much to make them better for the 2nd half of the season. The Clippers are still stuck in the same place, just like the Bulls, Pacers, and Knicks.
Below, are all the trades that happen during the past few days.
